B&R and Maplesoft have announced a partnership that will bring together products from both companies for hardware-in-the-loop simulations.

The open architecture of Automation Studio, B&R's programming and development software, is designed to ensure that physical models designed in MapleSim can be transferred to B&R controller hardware. The result is a hardware-in-the-loop simulation that emulates the machine's behavior in real time, in a completely safe testing environment.

“Using MapleSim, Automation Studio users can very quickly develop high-fidelity models of the control plant, analyze the dynamics, and then generate highly optimized real-time code for the plant,” said Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Vice President, Research and Development, Maplesoft. “By adding an easy-to-use and cost-effective physical modeling phase to the automation workflow, engineers will be able to increase virtual testing prior to hardware commitments. A definite way to reduce costly design errors.”
